Binghamton Advantage Program

The Binghamton Advantage Program (BAP) was a joint admissions program between Binghamton University and SUNY Broome Community College. Students lived on the Binghamton University campus while taking classes at SUNY Broome with an opportunity to transfer to Binghamton after one or two years.

The last cohort of BAP students were admitted in the fall of 2023 as the program has been discontinued. No additional students will be accepted. 

Students currently enrolled in the program will officially be a Binghamton University students beginning Spring 2024, subject to remaining in good standing at both SUNY Broome and Binghamton University. 

The intent behind the decision is to facilitate current BAP students transferring to Binghamton earlier than initially expected. Binghamton University has significantly expanded support and programming for transfer students over the past year, including the early arrival TRANSFERmation Summit offered in August and January each year. Former BAP students will continue to receive a high level of individualized support once matriculated.
